Wyndham Hotel Group has expanded its presence in Southeast Asia with the signing of a new franchised Ramada property in Malaysia.

The four-star Ramada Resort Lumut, due to open in 2018, is a RM455 million (US$110 million) project owned and developed by Kinta Berkat SDN BHD.

It will be located on the west coast of Malaysi, about three hours from Kuala Lumpur or one-and-a-half hours from Penang. Alternatively, it will be accessible from Sultan Azlan Shah Airport in Ipol and the soon-to-be completed West Coast Expressway.

Situated next to a forest reserve with panoramic views of the Straits of Malacca, the property will feature 170 guestrooms, 269 residential and serviced apartments, as well as seven forest villas complete with plunge pools and a spa.

A four-storey podium will house a series of multi-function rooms plus a banquet hall that can accommodate up to 350 people. The structure will be hidden behind a three-storey waterfall.

“As a company, we are committed to expanding our portfolio of offerings in destinations that people want to visit, and Malaysia is certainly a key market for us,” said Robinson.
